This month in Canada, Bianca Andreescu is all people seem to be able to talk about.

The Canadian tennis player was born in the year 2000 and throughout her short life, she has managed to become one of the most talked-about athletes on the planet.

On September 9, 2019, Andreescu reached a career-high when she became the first Canadian and the first person born in 2000 to win a Grand Slam singles title. She beat out the legendary Serena Williams for the win — pretty impressive. 

Andreescu may be an international celebrity, but that doesn't mean she is disconnecting from her Canadian roots.

Tennis Canada announced on twitter that on Monday, September 16, 2019, from 3 p.m to 5 p.m Andreescu will be at IGA Stadium in Jarry Park and she is inviting Montrealers to join her for an open practice session!

You will be able to not only be in the same room as greatness but watch and she shows off her incredible skill throughout the session.


Bianca will also be taking pictures and signing autographs so this is your chance to meet her!

If her success as an athlete catipulted her into national fame, her charm is quickly turning her into a superstar.

Her story is one of hard work and dedication and her journey so far has been nothing short of inspirational.

I am not the only Canadian that feels a sense of pride when it comes to this young athlete and I couldn’t be more excited that she is coming back to our city.

Andreescu has been touring North America to share her victory with adoring fans. 

This past weekend, a celebratory rally in Mississauga, Ontario drew hundreds, including the likes of Toronto mayor John Tory and prime minister Justin Trudeau!

Her Montreal appearance is sure to attract equal attention!
